2007 Rocca di Montegrossi "Geremia"

SKU #1076931 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Geremia is 71% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon. Layers of blue and black fruit, leather, spices and licorice are some of the nuances that flow across the palate in this voluptuous, striking wine. All of the elements come together seamlessly in the glass. This is another superb showing from Rocca di Montegrossi. The Cabernet was aged in 90% new barrels, while the Merlot saw 30% new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.  (8/ 2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

 A powerhouse, this beefy red exudes black currant, black cherry, cedar and spice aromas and flavors. The tannins are present, yet buffered by rich, sweet fruit. The long aftertaste echoes black currant and cedar. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2014 through 2025. 597 cases made.  (9/ 2012)

With a name like Geremia it has to be great. A big, bold and rich Super Tuscan.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
